The judges have made their lists and checked them twice. With dozens of entries from homes and businesses to choose from, the panel of seven judges worked hard this week to narrow the field to the best Christmas light displays in Greater Victoria.
Among this year’s winners of our annual Christmas Lighting Contest are some new names among the ones that are familiar to regular readers.
Don’t forget to pick up Friday’s Times Colonist for our popular Christmas lights map, with suggested routes for viewing the homes and businesses that entered the contest.
The Christmas Lighting Contest is a project of the Greater Victoria Festival Society, and is sponsored by the Times Colonist and Island Farms.
